Awesome science part whatever

We all know what happens when we exercise: Our muscles break down glycogen into lactic acid in anaerobic respiration, and if we don't get enough oxygen to them to continue the cycle into aerobic respiration, that lactic acid builds up and we feel the burn. That's what I learned in high school bio, anyway.

It's wrong. (With the caveat that the article is by Gina Kolata, whom I trust about as far as I can spit.)
